Consistently last in the news ratings war, America's highest paid newsreader is now claiming that she is a victim of sexism and that discrimination based on gender is more prevalent - and tolerated - in US society than racism:
What a narcissist. But then this is Couric's best hope--make herself out to be victim while playing the Hillary Clinton card and blaming sexism for her sagging ratings, not her liberal bias on reporting the news or the fact that she isn't the least bit qualified to report on world issues. Now quick, can you name a black news anchor in this country who gets paid $15 million per year? Of course you can't, because there isn't any.
"I find myself in the last bastion of male dominance, and realising what Hillary Clinton might have realised not long ago: that sexism in the American society is more common than racism, and certainly more acceptable or forgivable," Miss Couric told the paper as she covered Senator Barack Obama's Middle East tour.
"In any case, I think my post and Hillary's race are important steps in the right direction."
Ms Couric, who in 2006 became the first woman to present a primetime network news broadcast solo, has faced intensive scrutiny not only of her job performance but her outfits and personal life since taking over the CBS Evening News.
